False information! Dynamic range doesn't mean wider color gamut. It means that the difference between the lightest and the darkest values of light is larger.

Also A6000 cannot do 4k video! Regarding lens selection, Canon does offer some native EFM lenses that are highly regarded. Also with an adapter, the large EF and EFS catalog is available to you.

I mean, that's how it works when you are into photography. You buy a camera, get lenses, new cameras are released, you sell the old one and get a new one and so on and so on.

That said, I have the M6 and don't love it. I'm definitely getting the new M6 II though as it seems vastly superior to this one. Mostly, the M6 is too slow and sluggish when it comes to focusing and pretty much everything else.

Would only make sense if you already have the EOS-M lenses and now you want to upgrade to this M6 body. This is the price drop as the new version coming out soon.

Not an expert but the Sony is several years older plus it seems the Canon M lens are cheaper?

As someone that shoots a Canon M5, it's a pickem' between the a6000 and M6. You get better dynamic range, better action autofocus, and an EVF on the Sony; you get better controls, DPAF, and "better" colors on the Canon (quotations as color is, of course, subjective).

If you're really deciding between the two, you're better off figuring out what kind of shooting experience you want and picking the best camera body/lens lineup that suits your needs. You should also expand your selection to Panasonic and Fuji if you are just starting to look for a camera.

I personally shoot Canon because I get access to native DPAF performance on EF/EF-S glass, because I don't have to fuss too much with its colors in post processing, and because its controls get out of my way (for the most part). You, however, might want to shoot more action or low light shots.

1) Sony A6000 have advantages on the dynamic range (i.e. wider color range from the sensor), wider lens choice (but usually it is more expensive than Canon EF-M), 4K video.
2) Canon have advantages on the color science, flip LCD for vlog/selfie, touch screen, simple menu.

Canon is a good choice for person who want a simple, quick, reliable camera closer to phone camera (choice of a lot of youtuber). Sony is a good choice for person who want to get a better image and will invest more $$ and time on this.

hope can help.

I think this is exaggerating its weaknesses. I have an M6 and it's operational performance is fine and the focusing is fine for most things except for sports.

For reference, I also have/had the M1, M3 and Sony A6300 and A7III. The M6 usage and focus is nicely fast compared the the M1 and M3 (which were exceptionally slow). It's fine for most normal usage and is a bargain at this price. I paid twice as much.

The A6300 is much faster for focusing and frame rate but interface is more confusing than the M6 and doesn't have any sort of touchscreen, etc. The Sony A6xxx series also has fewer compact lenses compared to the Canon M system.

You are right and thanks for correction.

I think the speed of original M6 is ok but Sony A6xxx is better.

But M6 mark II out perform the A6000/6300/6500. So it is worth to consider it when compared with high end A64/65/6600.

The original M6 is the cheapest mature APSC system now.
